|Things are actually a lot better than they look here :)
1. I haven't received my reimbursement yet (about $250) from the trip I chaperoned.
2. I sent a deposit yesterday for an apartment in Chicago, $1500. (Roommate will pay me back for his half when he gets his paycheck next week.) So, had I filled this out a couple days ago, I would have had another $1500.
3. On Monday I received a job offer in Chicago! I will start in Sept (after I finish my MA this month), and in addition to salary + benefits, I will receive a $5000 sign-on bonus to help with moving expenses, which will be on my first paycheck. Yay!|
